Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

My mother moved to silves in October and we took her advice to try this establishment, upon our first visit we were a little worried as we had never had seafood before so stuck with what we knew steak. Everytime it has been cooked to perfection and the most sublime piece of meat. Since that we have become regulars always getting the same thing until today, we spoke with Paulo who upon us arriving knew our order including drinks before we even opened our mouths (which considering how busy it is I was pleasantly surprised as I have worked in the hospitality industry for over 10 years myself and I know how hard that can be when it's as busy as it is) we took the opportunity to say to Paulo we would love to try some however we didn't know how to go about eating it and didn't know if we would like it to which his reply was ok from now on I will get you to try something new Everytime and brought us out the most delicious prawns in garlic butter showed us how to go about eating it and we couldn't have been happier it was delicious. I cannot recommend this restaraunt enough if you are within the vicinity I highly highly recommend you visit and will be greatest by the most amazing staff all around. Fantastic!

Was looking for a place for lunch, stopped one place and waited 10 minutes with no response so left and found Marisqueira and are glad we did. Service was excellent and fish, salad, veg and dessert were all terrific.Both of had grilled sea bass special, dessert with coffee and shared a bottle of wine for under 40 Euros. If you want traditional Portuguese food done well, I recommend you give it a try if in Silves. We were also pleased they were checking vaccination records as many restaurants are not.

This restaurant was recommended to us by our hotel and it didn’t disappoint. The service is friendly and quick. We had amazing fish - especially the fish cataplana. We even asked for the shellfish to be taken out because of an allergy and they were very attentive about that. We came back a second time during our week in Algarve.

We ate in this Restauraunt tonight. After all the bill boards and advertising we thought that we were in for a treat ! What a disappointment ! We ordered prawns fried in garlic as a share starter and the fish cataplana for shared mains with a bottle of house red The prawns were over cooked with little or no garlic butter or oil. Not acceptable even for a roadside cafe! The cataplana had two good very large prawns but the rest of the fish was a very cheap and not so tasty heavy bones white fish . The sauce however was tasty but we were expecting a very tasty flavoursome well presented meal! Wow were we so disappointed. Give it a miss unless they upgrade the whole shop!

We had a rice with fish and shellfish, it had no flavor at all. Maybe they didn't know how to cook the rice, because there was a lot of fish and shellfish, and cooking all together with the rice is almost impossible to make it so bad, as it was billed in water. It's was the worst rice I have ever had

Encouraged by the positive reviews we chose to have lunch at Marisqueira Rui. Our waiter gave us the last table outside and moved it a bit into shade for our comfort. It looked like a nice beginning of a meal. It was not until we placed our orders when it became obvious that we had lost his interest. Locals were treated as the best customers. He clearly prioritized those customers who placed large and expensive orders to the point that we waited over an hour for our food. He brought it finally in without apologies - "I told you it was coming". We had tasted fish soup, monk fish kebab and tofu cataplana - the only vegan dish on the menu. The food was bland, veggies just boiled, salad consisted of chopped green leaves lettuce with unripe tomatoes, vegan cataplana with curry powder was also bland as was the monk fish. We were extremely disappointed and do not recommend this restaurant. Not only the restaurant seemed understaffed but as a tourist you are treated as second class customer.

The food was delicious, fresh locally sourced and homemade. Just the "wait to eat" buns they serve were to die for. We ordered more for takeout andactually got them for free?! Seafood cooked perfectly, sweet presentation, good portions. The staff were all so kind and fast. Outdoor and indoor seating available, overlooking cute town. We were lucky enough tosit through a parade in its streets. Wonderful atmosphere 10/10 didnt disappoint on a single thing.

I have been to Rui several times over the years but obviously it’s far between times. The booking system to Rui’s is chaotic, to say the least. You book a table for an hour but you are not guarenteed a table, for some reason. However, if you haven’t booked you will not get a table. The result is a long queue of people waiting outside the restaurant way beyond the hour they had booked. Well inside it’s loud. This place is loud. Sorry, correction, it’s LOUD!!! Forget going for a relaxing meal, forget about having conversations at the table. It’s a stressful experience, adding the wait outside to the volume inside, especially if you are a bigger group. Yes, the food is good, but hardly worth the hazzle.

We had a really enjoyable lunch here. Restaurant was very popular with Portuguese people. Our lunch consisted of bread/ grilled salmon/sea bream/salad/vegetable selection/ 2 glasses of wine/small beer/ 2 coffees €36.30. Really good food. My only comment is that your plates are cold having sat on the table prior to your arrival, and the alloy serving dishes on which the hot food arrives are also cold. I would have preferred them to be warned to help food retain its heat. Despite this I would highly recommend this restaurant especially if you like shell fish, lobster and crabs.

Authentic Portuguese restaurant with great service and food. We originally went there for lunch and decided to go back for dinner as we were so taken with this restaurant. We had the Seafood Cataplana which was delicious with lots of fish, prawns and clams. The waiters were very knowledgeable about the various seafood in the area and helped us choose the right dish. The prices were reasonable.

Not a glamour or a posh one. But this restaurant is delivery a very very good quality of fish and sea food. For me was probably the best fish and sea food experience ever. Definitely worth it. And the price are very competitive in the end for the quality of the food

We had a lovely evening there, we shared a seafood cocktail started, tasty but the mains really were gorgeous. I had sole my wife the sea bass, both accompanied by potatoes and veg, the fish was so good and the service really professional yet friendly. Go there if you like fish, that’s my advice.

Loved this restaurant. We were unsure what to order as a starter to share so the waiter sorted a platter of prawns, clams and gooseneck barnacles. We were a bit unsure but they were delicious. Fish main courses were excellent and washed down with a lovely Alentejo white. Fantastic value. The place was packed with locals, always a good sign. Good job we booked in advance.

Was told by locals this is one of the best places to get fresh seafood by the locals. They have a wide range of fish, shellfish and even have the local delicacy precebes. Everything was fresh and delicious. Similar in style to Ramiro in Lisbon. Scarlet shrimp to die for!

We visited for lunch with our 2 daughters aged 15 and 10. The fresh fish and seafood is beautifully cooked, tender and seasoned to perfection. We sat outside and enjoyed people watching, it's in a perfect location in the town. Our girls really enjoyed the authenticity of the menu and food.
